I installed a browser addon for it but then on most sites, I end up with two Back to Top buttons. If my hand's already on he mouse, which it usually is, a Back to Top button is easier than scrolling or reaching for Home on my keyboard.

Any chance of getting a Back to Top button?

John,

I think this is a good idea.  Good job.

I believe most operating systems / browsers provide a keyboard shortcut for this.

in addition... maybe a way to sort by most recent? Or jump to bottom?

I apologize, I should read more carefully.

I for one would like to see a back to top button, or at least a button at the bottom that links back to the forum main page.

(keyboard is usually tucked away to make desk space)

Guess it depends on browsing style. I use the elevator - always in the same place and seems as quick as finding where whatever webpage I'm on happens to stash the "back-to" button.

Regards,
Rufus

NP

5:45 am, still dark, everyone else is sleeping so I'm not turning on a light in our almost one room cabin, chilly and I just added wood to the fire, surfing on the laptop while the fire takes affect. I can see the regular keys but not the top two rows where the Home button is.

I just tap the bar next to the time on my tablet and it takes me to the time of whatever page I am on. Sometimes it is a quick double tap.  Sorry, I dont know what that are is called.
